"Your Local" West Toronto Sub-Region
As partners of the West, we are focused on:
Population Based Planning
Service Alignment and Integration
The future of health care is local.
The Local is a storytelling platform that brings a human dimension to population health data in the Toronto Central LHIN. It tells hyperlocal stories about population health issues and grassroots innovations happening within the Toronto neighbourhoods that make up the LHIN’s five sub-regions.
No data without stories, and no stories without data.
